Sunn Beta Bass vs Crate BXH-220
I'm getting confused, so before I wreck myself or do something I'm going to regret I'll turn to the (nearly) infinite knowledge of Talkbass.
In brief: Sunn Beta Bass Head for sale in TB classifieds. I look for a sound demo; I love the distortion channel's sound; GAS ensues. I start to entertain the possibility of trading my Crate BXH-220 head for the Sunn, as the seller mentions being interested in trades.
The Sunn Beta is 100 watts, as I understand. The Crate is 220 into 4 ohms, 150 into 8. This seems like it would be a downgrade, but I feel like I'm missing some part of the puzzle, that is, why the Crate apparently costs so much less than the Sunn. I understand part of it's the dual-channel setup, but is that all of it?
Am I just crazy and better off with the Crate for gigging? I do need to keep up with some heavy guitars (think Metallica heavy, not Meshuggah heavy).
